Pulborough has the perfect soil and south facing hills for growing wine grapes of the types popular in the Champagne region of France. This meant that the Romans made wine here and now with climate change enabled some of the best vinyards in England to set up around Pulborough. The best known are the award winning sparking wines of Nyetimber while others are substantial family businesses which you can visit – they create very popular and award winning wines, provide tastings, vineyard tours and other events as the seasons permit.
